I've just joined (past two hours), and so far haven't seen the Validation-email.
Just spending time Mechanical Turk-ing.

The confirmation e-mails are being sent, but don't seem to be getting through. It seems likely that your e-mail provider is silently ignoring e-mail from our project. Mail I sent to my own account there is not getting through, though mail I sent from there does get here. Perhaps you can use an account on a more reliable e-mail service?

Well I'd like to keep the email I've had for nearly five years...
(And I'm still not seeing it- yet.)

Is there an alternative method?
(As you can see from my sig, I'm involved; all of the credit is from the Mech. Turk.)

It's the not-receiving-an-email that's bugging me.

Try verifying your e-mail address again.
Mine is also on hotmail, and it just worked for me
(the message got through).

I've tried occasionally since your post, and... Whoo-hoo! I finally received the Verification Email today (about 2 minutes ago).

In cases like this - or when I join from work where I usually don't query my private mails - I just go to the cookie file of my web browser and take that auth entry from there.
